The family of a former Corinth resident who has not been heard from since last week is seeking information on his whereabouts.

Jay Hill Jr., 33, lives in Tupelo and also spends time in Horn Lake in northwest Mississippi. He grew up in Corinth and is the son of J.C. Hill, the city’s ward 4 alderman.

“We haven’t seen him or heard from him since Wednesday afternoon,” said Hill. “That’s not like him to not call back or get in touch.”

The missing man also calls himself “Mac Hill” in a social media profile.

Cellular communications indicate his phone was last pinged in the Shannon area of Lee County.

Hill is described as standing 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing 245 pounds. He has long, braided hair and tattoos on his arms.

He drives a 2006 gray Lincoln Navigator with a DeSoto County tag.

Information may be reported to the Horn Lake Police Department at (662) 342-3536 or Tupelo Police Department at (662) 841-6491.

TUPELO – Law enforcement officials are trying to verify the identity of a body found inside a burnt car in rural Lee County late last week.


The remains could belong to Jay C. Hill, 33, the son of a Corinth alderman who was last seen in the Tupelo area on Aug. 9.


According to Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson, a farmer looking for a lost cow in a rural area on the Lee-Pontotoc county line discovered a burned out car with the remains of a human inside.



"It was on some farmland, way off the road," Johnson said. "You had to be going there to find it. A farmer looking for a cow that got out of a pasture. He stumbled across it and let us know."


Both the car and the body suffered severe fire damage. When officials finally located the car's vehicle identification number, it belonged to a person reported missing from DeSoto County in early August. That person was on federal probation at the time of his disappearance. Johnson would not identify the possible identity of the remains, but verified the burned vehicle was a Lincoln Navigator.


"With the car and the body being burnt, it's hard to estimate how long they had been out there," Johnson said. "We contacted the farmer who is renting that land. He said the last time he was out there, before August, the car wasn't there."



Hill, also known as "Mac,” was reported missing to Tupelo and Horn Lake police in August. He was reportedly traveling to the Memphis area in a silver 2006 Lincoln Navigator.


Hill pleaded guilty to a federal charge of conspiracy to distribute cocaine in 2013. According to the Bureau of Prisons website, Hill was released in July 2016 and began serving three years of probation.


He is the son of Corinth alderman J.C. Hill. Jay Hill was originally from Corinth but had been living in Tupelo, according to the father.


The remains were turned over to Lee County Coroner Carolyn Green. She has since carried the remains to the state crime lab for possible DNA identification, as well as the time and cause of death. The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation took possession of the car to search for evidence.
